Govt plans for digital Britain: New ministers, superfast broadband and a review of the Digital Economy Act

The new coalition government has put two Conservative ministers in charge of its digital policies. Jeremy Hunt is in charge of the UK's broadband and Ed Vaizey is overseeing the implementation of the Digital Economy Act. Hunt, the Conservative secretary of state for culture, Olympics, media and sport, will oversee the rollout of high-speed broadband across the UK, the government said on Wednesday night.

Parliamentary under-secretary of state Ed Vaizey will work across two departments — the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS). Vaizey will be responsible for implementing the copyright crackdown that is enabled by the Digital Economy Act, which is the policy descendent of the Digital Britain report. It remains to be seen if Liberal Democrats' opposition to elements of the act, such as its website-blocking provisions, will influence official government policy.
